Class Gives Students a Path to Police Career

The Police Service Aide course at the Career Enrichment Center prepares students for public service.

A unique class at the Career Enrichment Center is preparing students to work as Police Service Aides for the Albuquerque Police Department.  The course taught by APD officers and staff gives students insight into what it means to be a police officer.

“We want to provide the foundation through education to show students what it’s like to go into any field of law enforcement,” said J.D. Maes, APD course Instructor.  “We want them to get prepared physically and mentally, while having a basic introduction into the career.”

Students who are interested in the course can contact their counselor or the Career Enrichment Center
